For those who need oxygen via a machine living with it sometimes is tough. You need to adapt to a way of life but also not let it hinder your well-being and what you can do.
Oxygen is your life and do not feel you are confined to staying at home as you are connected to a machine.
Oxygen therapy has come a long way but today the smallest and most versatile portable equipment is available. Medical oxygen allows patients the ability to go on holiday, travel, exercise and be on the move 24/7 as you increase your oxygen blood levels that help stop symptoms, breathing difficulties and prevent heart damage.
A few do’s and don’ts
Keep cylinders upright at all times whilst at home
Make sure you have working fire alarms and detectors in your home
Don’t use flammable liquids and keep away from heat such as gas hobs
Don’t let anyone smoke near you whilst you are using your oxygen
We all needs to breath 24 hours a day, every day so some much needed support from oxygen suppliers is needed. The working day may be 9 to 5 and people go home and switch off but when you have an essential, vital need you cant have this added worry especially when travelling abroad with medical oxygen.
That’s why OxygenWorldwide offers a 24 hour service for all its customers in English, Spanish, German, French and Dutch. Now that is service and a company that understand and with its years of working in this field they care and understand their customers.
When travelling you would not want the added worry, stress or even language barrier if something went wrong with your oxygen supply or concentrator so let OxygenWorldwide put you at ease for you next holiday.
It is natural for your oxygen levels to fall lower when you are sleeping at night. Although some conditions such as sleep apnea may improve with the addition of oxygen whilst you are sleeping. It is very common that people who have an oxygen level that falls lower than 88% whilst sleeping will require some oxygen at night.
Medical oxygen will help improve those low oxygen levels but you can also try exercising regularly and make sure you are not drinking alcohol before bedtime.
Having a better nights’ sleep will improve your mood, decrease fatigueness and overall improve your health.
A better nights’ sleep will maintain an improvement in your life – discuss all your options with your specialist or GP first.
If you suffer with deprived sleeping patterns this can affect your daily life and well-being.
It is important to try and improve your energy and mood so you can live a balanced and happy life.
It is now that time of year when you start feeling a little more festive. Christmas lights switch on, families and friends start planning get-togethers and gatherings and out come the cosy jumpers and woolly hats. Planning gifts and hosting dinner parties may seem jolly but some people may be feeling stress and a bit anxious travelling with oxygen over the Christmas season.
Do not worry at all here at OxygenWorldwide we can let you spend more time downloading your favourite book, Christmas playlist and purchasing presents for your loved ones so just leave the organisation of medical oxygen for you travel needs to us!
Here are 5 top tips when travelling with oxygen over the festive period:
1) Make sure you have notified everyone on your expected times of arrival and where you are staying to ensure that your supply arrives at the correct location / date / time
2) Ensure you pack everything you will need for the destination you are visiting. Especially over the winter months take extra care in packing the right clothes for the temperature. Many countries over winter months drop and you will need to keep warm
3) Always take more than enough supply of medication with you – transportation car / train / boar or plane especially in colder climates could be delayed or cancelled and pro-long your trip
4) If you are staying with friends and family make sure they have OWW contact details as we are available for help 24/7 and can help if something goes wrong with your oxygen supply during your trip
5) Most of all enjoy Christmas and unwind. Relaxing is the best medicine as well as laughter and joy. Make memories during your trip that will last a lifetime.
